New products can bring change to the industry. This happens in one of two ways – evolutionary or revolutionary. Sometimes it is easy to spot the difference. A new feature in software that can make the user interface easier is an evolutionary design. It makes the next incremental step in the process and while adding value and productivity, does so in a small way.
Revolutionary products can bring exponential change to the industry. These are products that create new processes that eliminate old ones. An example of a revolutionary change would be the robotic total station. Instead of tape measures and T-squares, total stations use BIM, control points and positioning lasers to accurately determine locations in a construction project today. New processes are used entirely, but huge productivity gains are made.
While most evolutionary products that move the process forward are beneficial, revolutionary products that can bring exponential productivity increases are celebrated. During the opening session of the MCAA Tech Conference, James Benham will present multiple products that can be classified as revolutionary. If there is one session that cannot be missed at the conference, it will be this one.
In order to showcase how these new products will impact MCAA members, James Benham will bring in the experts. This will include contractors that have beta tested them, research teams that have evaluated them and the developers themselves who will provide demonstrations of their purpose. Some of these new products will be available immediately, some later in the year, but all will have an impact on our industry.
